Any bets whose back is “spasming” 10 tournaments in Tiger or DJ? Gosh at this rate Tiger will be challenging the LDA guys.. Wonder if he is working on those wedge yips that appeared a few times at the Hero..

None available. It's called Bermuda grass and plenty of other players had the same "yips".

Lindsey Vonn was quoted today saying that Tiger is stubborn. Swinging this hard is another example of Tiger being his worst enemy. I think DJ only was at 182 MPH at Kapalua.

Tiger had the yips at Phoenix. And that was overseeded rye.

Hero. Stop yipping your way through the thread!

Yes the person I responded to just mentioned the Hero tournament where the Bermuda was giving many players trouble.

I will consider your mentioning Phoenix to be a forum yip.

You missed the point. The poster was saying that it was grainy bermuda that not just Tiger struggled on. But Tiger has struggled on more than just grainy bermuda. It’s on multiple surfaces like rye.

The comforting thing for Tiger is that the same guys that said, in absolutely unequivocal terms, Tiger would never have the speed to compete on tour any longer are now the ones saying it will cause his back to fail. Or.... If they're wrong on that the chip yips from a while back will get him. Or....

It's like watching guys throw a million darts at the board and then exulting if they finally get a bulls eye.

I'm pretty sure my ball speed when putting is around 67,000 mph (give or take a couple).  Heck my fat a** sitting on the couch does about the same speed.

I know this was meant to be a defense, but I think this post just goes to show that there are numerous valid reasons to doubt Tiger on this most recent comeback.
